Over the course of 2013, a large number of international Hip-Hop acts have toured Australia, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, A$AP Rocky, Kendrick Lamar to name a few. All of these acts played most major cites, but not Adelaide! The next MC set to make a trip down under is Talib Kweli as part of the Rap City tour, again missing Adelaide. I know I'm not the only South Australian Hip-hop head upset about this. After all, Adelaide is one of the major centres of the Aus Hip-Hop culture, the home of Golden Era records and legendary acts like the Hilltop Hoods and The Funkoars. I understand that this is possibly to do with the Rap City tour structure and not Kweli personally choosing to miss us. But I figure if we make enough noise, we can get the legendary BK MC to come visit!

Trisha Ellard, Australia2 years ago Comments: Adelaide is integral to Australian hip hop! Home to Fubkoars, Golden Era records& the mighty Hilltop Hoods. Bizarre for a hip hop show to go to any other city in Australia other than Adelaide the Rap City tour is not very hip hop if it ignores the Adelaide scene!!!
